My Internet was down for nearly 5 days. FIVE DAYS! I had no idea that I relied on the Internet as much as I do. I was having withdrawals. I couldn't check my favorite blogs, I had no idea how to find out what was playing at the movie theater. I had to locate the yellow pages (the actual books) to get the phone number to the Chinese place down the street, I had to look on my bank statement to find out how to check my balance. I was just shocked at how much I use the Internet for. Thank goodness for my friends Donna & Renada who allowed me to use their Internet to check my e-mail and check up on my favorite blogs. *applause applause*
SO, you're probably wondering what I did with myself all weekend...okay, you're probably not, but I'm going to tell you anyway. I finally finished all of the grunt work so that I could my taxes done, I read Blood Magic from start to finish (excellent read BTW), I harassed my husband into cleaning out the closet and I caught up on a lot of television that I had taking up space on my DVR. I hung out with my really cool 13 year old daughter and with my bestest friend in the whole world Renada. Then, finally, on Sunday *hear the angels sing* the Cox guy came out and hooked up my Internet. The clouds parted, the sun was shining, I had Internet once again.
So my question for the day is this: Am I pathetic and sad or what? Do you all use your internet as much as I use mine or do I just need to get a life?
